The author of ‘There is a Fountain’, William Cowper (pronounced Cooper), had a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ. However, he often had periods of doubt and envisioned himself hopeless and destined for hell. The final verse of this hymn may reflect that:

When this poor lisping, stamm’ring tongue Lies silent in the grave,
Then in a nobler, sweeter song I’ll sing Thy pow’r to save:
I’ll sing Thy pow’r to save, I’ll sing Thy pow’r to save;
Then in a nobler, sweeter song I’ll sing Thy pow’r to save.

When we become Christians and have our sins forgiven, we still have to deal with our sin nature that pulls us after the world. When we stumble in our walk of faith, we can sometimes condemn ourselves, which assumes a condemnation by God. Its in those times I need to come back to the cross and encourage myself in the hope that when Jesus shed His precious blood on that cross, all my sins were paid for…ALL.

So, be refreshed in the good news that Jesus has paid your debt. Live freely.
